Nipples at the Met

Nipples at the Met

The largest unofficial sponsor of public breastfeeding, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, is the focus of a clever new website called, simply nipplesatthemet.com. It’s basically a page of nipples from the The History of Art. There are creamy nipples, chipped nipples; brown ones, pink ones, round ones and faded ones. Taken all together in one eyeful they make a kind of lovely, abstract picture. Lots of squares with small round circles in them. It is strange, though, taking them out of their various contexts. The splicing of women’s body parts into nips, tits, thighs and asses can be exploitative, but this website is making me very happy. It’s funny. And perky. And makes you realize how truly likable the nipple is.
